According to The Bulletin, Bryant spends most days alone inside his cell. He no longer reads or watches television, has no friends, and although he is said to receive large numbers of letters, mostly from women, he never opens them. He has not spoken to anyone for at least two years, and seems lost in a profound depression, the magazine says. Mrs Bryant, who lives in southern Tasmania, says one of her deepest regrets is agreeing to persuade her son to plead guilty.
"My poor Martin," she says. "He couldn't have shot all those people down at Port Arthur. He didn't have the brains to do it."
Bryant's former defence lawyer John Avery paints a different picture. "His only regret afterwards was that he didn't shoot more (people)," he told The Bulletin. "This was not a situation that got out of hand. It went as he pretty much intended."
